Making headlines: Parliament 'notes' party-funding ruling, Parliament cuts ties with KPMG And, DA wants Zuma to appoint SABC board immediately

Parliament 'notes' party-funding ruling


Moves are already afoot to regulate the public and private funding of political parties, Parliament yesterday as it noted a court ruling forcing political parties to disclose where their funding comes from.

In a statement, Parliamentary spokesperson Moloto Mothapo said this process mooted by Parliament included prohibiting certain donations made directly to political parties and regulating disclosure of donations.


Yesterday Judge Yasmin Shenaz Meer ruled in the Western Cape High court that Parliament had 18 months to rectify "inconsistencies" in the Promotion of Access to Information Act, following an application from non-profit organisation My Vote Counts.


Parliament cuts ties with KPMG

Parliament said yesterday it has terminated its contract with KPMG, citing reputational risks after the global auditor was caught up in a scandal involving business friends of President Jacob Zuma.

Parliament said this termination included a contract KPMG has with a medical aid scheme for MPs.

KPMG cleared out its South African leadership en masse this month after damning findings from an internal investigation into the Guptas, accused by a public watchdog of improperly influencing government contracts.


DA wants Zuma to appoint SABC board immediately

The DA has called on President Jacob Zuma to appoint the South African Broadcasting Corporation board immediately.

This came after the interim board's term expired on Tuesday. Zuma has not appoint the board recommended to him by Parliament three weeks ago.

In a statement from the presidency, it said Zuma was "still applying his mind".
